up with the story that the terrorist attack was somehow connected to the mohammed video? in a way i think susan rice's withdrawal of her secretary of state candidacy really clears a way potential obstacle. now there is no talk about racism or sexism. now we can get to the point the president himself asked for, what did he do wrong? what did his administration do wrong that led to four americans being murdered? so i think it's important to proceed down that road, perhaps starting next week with secretary of state hillary clinton's testimony up on the hill. jon: that is going to be fascinating to watch. ambassador bolton, good to have you on. thank you. >> thank you. jenna: we'll get back to the school shooting in connecticut. we're just learning more information on what happened this morning. harris, you have more for us in the newsroom. >> reporter: let's catch everybody up in case they're just tuning in, jenna. this is newtown, connecticut. the sandy hook elementary school reported a shooting hour and a half ago. state police in connecticut are assisting local police here in the ar

on the constitution has become a referendum on egypt's islamic president, mohamed morsi. >> reporter: both sides of the egyptian political divide plan major marches and rallies this morning. government supporters are calling a yes vote on the referendum a vote for islam. the opposition is fragmented and far less organized and decided only a few days ago to vote no rather than boycott the ballot. the new constitution was drafted by the ruling islamist party and its hard-line political allies. the mainly secular opposition says the 63-page document does not represent all of egypt's 83 million people and tramples on the rights of minorities such as christians. a major problem is a lack of monitors. a significant number of judges have refused to supervisor the 13,000 polling stations so the voting will have to be held over two days first in major cities an then in the countryside. many egyptians are simply growing weary after two years of political turmoil. adding to their woes is the effect on the economy. the tourism industry has been hard-hit and the prospects of attracting f
